Now that CES has officially begun, we’ve started seeing tons of fun, practical and crazy product announcements.
Whether you want to streamline grocery shopping, make your home more eco-friendly, or connect with a new robot friend, the latest crop of tech wonders has you covered.
Here are a few of our favorite products unveiled at CES so far.
- LG rollable LED display
Last year’s curved TVs have nothing on LG’s new paper-thin, 18-inch OLED display, which you can roll up like a newspaper while it continues to play a video. LG announced the flexible display in 2014 but waited until CES for the public reveal.
- CHiP the robot dog
This adorable canine A.I. from WowWee will wait for you by the door and play fetch just like a real pup. CHiP contains an array of sensors and features and connects to its owner with a special Bluetooth-connected Smart Band.
- Samsung Family Hub refrigerator
Samsung’s latest contribution to your smart home boasts a 21.5-inch touchscreen on its front and will remind you to order groceries. Three hidden cameras snap photos and let you know when items run low.
- The Segway Robot
Segway partnered with Intel and Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi to build a kind of hoverboard, which can transform into a robot. Intel’s Ninebot Segway Robot, also called the ‘Hoverboard Butler,’ has detachable arms and is powered Intel’s RealSense technology.
- Hydrao smart showerhead
This smart showerhead helps keep water conservation front-of-mind. Built-in LED lights change color to indicate water usage. This eco-friendly product is powered by the flow of water through the shower via a tiny turbine inside.
